Amsterdam design

| Categories: diseño, viajes


September Amsterdam design, the entire city was taken by exhibitions, shows, activities under the scope: design. Fashion, product, graphic, jewellery, accessories, conceptual, etc…

We decided to spend our Saturday (29th) visiting galleries, offices and fairs of this special even. I cannot do a reference of everything we watched there but here I would like to refer to Droog design, probable one of the most interesting and famous design offices in Netherlands and to an exhibition called: Platform 21: folding

Beside its name, Droog was indeed one of the most exciting experiences, I had with design for a long time, their concepts, processes and result make me believe that still exists a hope for design, out of the mainstream and establishment. I would like to highlight and recommend here paying attention to: their actively collaboration with TU Delft on a project call Dry tech. The Knotted Chair by Marcel Wanders is one of the best known designs from the first edition of this project, their concept about our prefab life, and current state-or-the-art in technology, and finally their aesthetic, that combine some sort of irony always by the hand of experimentation. See here a video I found representative of them.

A second aspect that strongly lured me was an exhibition called: Folding, just paper and its aesthetic possibilities on fashion, exciting for it is more than a cloth, rather it is a whole installation based on “fold”. This exhibition was accompanied of interviews and videos of different researchers on this area.Finally my pics. 17 images I’m sure you might enjoy.
